Training For Dopey 48.6 , snow storm and I had a great Thanksgiving.

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and were able to spend time being thankful for all life’s blessings.  I had a nice holiday.

One of our Thanksgiving traditions is to pre-game a fancy early breakfast at the Ritz Carlton in Boston before our family’s Thanksgiving Dinner held at our home.

We always enjoy stuffing ourselves with pancakes, eggs, waffles, bacon, bagels, fruit, etc…before “Turkey Time”.    It is very enjoyable and amusing chowing down.  Yes. I love pigging out.  Later in the evening, our kids and family enjoyed a nice dinner.

The  event is NOW less than 6 weeks away.  The event begins on January 9 2020.

My training is going well. However, this challenge scares the heck out of me. This is my first Dopey!

I am pushing myself harder, covering more distance than I am used to, but I will survive.

I am also pleased that I was able to squeeze in another practice Dopey Simulation.
